Ghanaian media personality and revered Master of Ceremony, Kafui Dey, believes grades and first class honors are overrated in the Ghanaian society.
According to the former host of ‘Who Wants To Be A Billionaire’, excellent grades or first class honors do not guarantee success in the real world.
Kafui Dey who was speaking at the 5th Edition of the What I Wish I Knew (WIWIK) Conference, said that while in the University he wished he knew “grades are overrated, [and] getting a first class is really overrated.”
“You come to the real world and employers want to know what you can do or what you have done in the past. Networking is something I would have done a bit more, linking up with people and developing relationships,” he added.
Kafui Dey also was quick to add that although grades are overrated, students must still take their studies seriously.
Do you agree with him?
